I will be focusing on my other GOD's Flesh blog on wordpress to develop it because my e-books are located there and also my e-mail list. The ministry needs money for certain works of the Kingdom, so I need to sell some e-books.

You may proceed there if you want to continue getting our articles, but rest assured, I will be going back to this blog as soon as possible, Godwilling. So, I invite you to visit the wordpress blog by clicking this link:

When Your Prayers Get Nothing from God

Image
Here's Part 1

Don't panic when your prayers seem to get nothing from God. I stress on the word "seem." Often, it seems that way. Answered prayers are good, but you see, there's something in unanswered prayers that they're not telling us---either they don't want to or they don't know it---because they're "stuck" with answered prayers. 😏

Often (I said often, not always), answered prayers are for those who can't afford to wait, either they have less patience or they have urgent cases in their hands. But if God is working on you big-time, he intentionally prolongs your waiting, improving on your patience, because James says "patience (or perseverance) must finish its work so that you may be perfect and complete, not lacking anything."



You're somewhat in the same situation as Abraham and Moses were (and other prophets and men of God) who suffered incredible delays or "wasting time" pointlessly in some silly wilder…

Unanswered Prayer is Favor

Image
One day, I read somewhere in the bible. "Will he keep putting them off?"

The phrase caught my attention years ago while in meditation. It was a powerful revelation. God sometimes intentionally "keeps putting off" the prayers of his "righteous (or chosen) ones." He deliberately delays or ignores our prayers, keeping them unanswered "day and night," not because of sin in our lives, but because he chooses to.

Why does he choose to? I'll reveal it to you later.

Here's the complete passage:
And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? [Luke 18.7] I then understood God's point in Job. Job's prayers remained unanswered because God favored him, as God's earlier conversation with Satan revealed. Job's friends insisted that it was due to sin, or disfavor, because they didn't understand what was going on, though they seemed super spiritual---more spir…

Prosperity in the Gospel

Image
I was watching this popular Filipino evangelist on TV preaching about prosperity. I respect him and learn a lot when I watch him, but there are certain things I don't agree with him---like his view on God's prosperity. He suggested there may be something wrong with you if you've been a born-again Christian a long time and still poor.

Yup, God's will is prosperity. I agree to the max. He even quoted 3 John 2 and Deuteronomy 18.8 and I believe them with all my heart. Yet, we have to get a hint from Jesus and see how he came to earth. He came as a poor fellow and left still a poor fellow, if not poorer. The same with John the baptizer. And look at how James (1) put it:
Believers who are poor have something to boast about, for God has honored them. 10 And those who are rich should boast that God has humbled them. They will fade away like a little flower in the field.

In the Old Testament, prosperity was material. But these are just shadows of the realities in Christ, said…

Power in the Word with God in the Beginning

Image
"He was with God in the beginning."

Moses saw creation in the beginning, but God took John further back in time. John saw things before the creation. And he saw that "in the beginning was the Word." It's powerful when I sit back and try to imagine all this. Moses said, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." But John saw that in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God. Creation came only afterward.

They talked of the same thing but saw differently. So, I imagine "the beginning" covered a lengthy stretch of time, especially when John saw things prior to creation---specifically, when "the Word was with God."  He saw the companionship, relationship and fellowship of the Word and God. He tried to stress this by repeating, "He was with God in the beginning." I see an effort of emphasis here, an accentuation of God and the Word together for a period. A powerful Kingdom principle can be glimpsed he…

Only God and the Word in the Beginning

Image
"...and the Word was with God."

It's the foremost reason why we cannot afford to ignore the Word. There was nothing and no one in the beginning but God and the Word. Before anything else came to being---when there was nothing but deep black emptiness (in fact, "emptiness" and "black" didn't even exist)---there was God and the Word. The Word was already there with God.

The Word was God. So, God was with God in the beginning. Sometimes, I like to read it "In the beginning was God and God was with the Word, and God was the Word." It makes you see more how the Word takes prominence in it all. You cannot just go content in the morning with your 15-minute "devotion" if you understand this.


You'd see clearly why the Word must be meditated day and night. There's so much to know about Him that even a lifetime wouldn't suffice to cover even a third of it---even if we lived 100 lifetimes---because long before time began (or pe…

When Truth Does Not Agree with Experience

Image
Paul said guard your life and doctrine closely. And this is understood as doctrines found in the bible, nothing more, since there were no denominational doctrines in Paul's time. All churches believed one and the same set of bible doctrines, which was consistent with Jesus' prayer in John 17.23---complete unity of all believers.

But then one day, actual experience in life began contradicting bible truths. Things said in the bible didn't happen to them. Real life contradicted what the bible said. And as more church people experienced this, they concluded that truth should be adjusted to their experience. That should solve the conflict. But the problem was, different folks had different experiences. This becomes the problem when you adjust truth to your experience rather than adjust experience to God's truth.



So they adjusted Scriptures to their own experiences. One group found it hard to experience real holiness, so they thought holiness shouldn't be taken so serio…
